Fine Tune Your Enigma-Based Satellite Receiver with Enigma Signal Tool

It’s no secret that here at XDA, we like to tweak things. Naturally, the same time of people who hack and optimize mobile phones are likely to do the same on all of their other toys—including things such as their television viewing experience. Add in a delivery method that responds well to tweaking such as satellite, and you’ve got a perfect combination.

To that end, XDA forum member shax has created a Windows Phone 7 application that helps you do exactly this. Enigma Signal Meter allows you to get the most out of your Enigma-powered satellite receiver by helping you align your dish to perfection. All you need is a Windows Phone 7 device that can install XAP files, an Enigma-based receiver with WebIf, and a network connection between your device and satellite receiver.

In the words of the developer:

Fast, small, simple and free application for Enigma 1 / Enigma 2 satellite receivers, build to help you align you satellite dish to perfection. Please, keep in mind that this application is still HIGHLY UNTESTED AND BETA. Since i don’t have actual Phone 7 device i was not able to test it properly. Use on your own responsibility. Also, please report any bugs found.

Currently the app seems to work on Windows Phone 7 devices, but Mango users may want to wait for a later revision. And while the application may help you tune your reception, it does absolutely nothing to prevent the recent onslaught of teenie-bopper vampire dramas afflicting most sets across the globe.

If you’re still interested, be sure to visit the application thread to get tweaking!
